I know, I know!!!

So I really do know just how bad I've been at blogging lately. I keep trying to get the motivation to get on here and blog about some of the fun things we've been doing (and I feel incredibly awful that I didn't even post a Happy Birthday to Blake on his birthday) but I keep getting sidetracked by the beautiful weather we're finally having and ... the GYM!!! My goal is to have some new pictures up by the end of next week. If you don't see something I give you each permission to smack me around a little!. This'll have to do for today though. ;)

We had a great time doing fun Easter activities this year! To start out we went to our friends house and dyed eggs and did a cute little Easter egg hunt. I half expected Spencer to run around crazy and take all the eggs for himself, but he was a great big brother and friend and made sure that the younger kids got eggs too! The dyeing of the eggs was a fun experience. Growing up we never really did that (or if we did I've forgotten) and so it was fun to sit and spend some quality time with my boys as we waited for the color to set. Then of course as soon as they were done, Tyler had cracked one open and was eating it... gotta love it :)

We were awoken early Easter morning to Spencer running in our room telling us all about his easter basket that the easter bunny left for him and Brooklyn and Tyler. Which, after he ran out of our room, he immediately ran to Tyler's room and let him out so he could get to his easter basket too. Blake and I both sighed and then slowly got up (since if we left them down there alone they would eat themselves into sugar shock). We did another little easter egg hunt with them and it was so cute to watch Brooklyn walk around, bend over all slow and pick up an egg while giggling. She is my darling little girl that's for sure. They all looked so cute in their Easter outfits at church, but somehow I didn't get a picture of them all. I think that this may have something to do with the fact that I asked Blake to do it while I was getting ready. I think that's why, but I can't be too sure. So you're just gonna have to take my word for it that they all looked dang cute!

Fun at the Farm... on the one and only warm day so far!!

For a Mommy and Me outing last week we took the kids to the Farm at Thanksgiving Point. We've done this about a million times since we live so close, but this time it was so fun because Brooklyn was walking around and having a great time getting up close and personal with the animals (not really haha, she'd freak anytime they got too close to her face). As usual Tyler's favorite part was the pony ride. He kept looking at me and saying "cheese, Mommy!" and he was adament that he wanted the purple one (that was the color of the reigns). Brooklyn on the other hand screamed bloody murder when I tried to put her on a pony. Ah well, it just meant that Tyler got another turn :) Here's some pics from our day out.

Spencer and Tyler's Birthday at Boondocks

This past Saturday we celebrated both Spencer and Tyler's birthday at Boondocks. Tyler turned 3 on March 2nd and Spencer will be turning 8 (can't believe it) on March 23rd. Since their bdays are so close together we figured why not knock out their parties in one big birthday bash swoop! We had a great time with friends and family. Tyler loves anything and everything Diego so of course we had to get him a Diego cake which he was absolutely thrilled about! Spencer wanted Spongebob, which he was equally excited about :) Here are the pictures from our fun evening.

Happy Anniversary Honey! (wow 4 years!)

Today is my and Blake's 4 year Wedding Anniversary and I just want to let Blake know how much I love him! He is a wonderful man, husband, and father. I don't think I could find a man who loves and cares for me more than he does. He truly makes me feel cherished each and every day. Thank you sweetie for a great 4 years and I'm looking forward to the next 4 (hopefully more than 4 ) hehe

Our Valentines Weekend

This Valentines was definitely memorable, but not so much in a good way. Brooklyn was hospitalized for RSV/Bronchiolitis.So we spent our Valentines Day in the hospital nursing our little baby girl back to health. She was such a trooper, even when she was getting poked and prodded by the nurses. She is such a sweet little girl and complained minimally about all that was happening to her. We're home now and extremely grateful! Thank you to everyone who came to visit and especially Kim and Mariah for bringing us dinner this past week :) You guys are great!

Fun at the Firehouse

For a preschool activity last week we took the kids over to the Firestation to meet the firemen and so they could see and touch an actual firetruck. Tyler seemed pretty hesitant at first and would barely touch the fireman when he was all suited up in his protective gear, but once we moved on to the firetruck and he realized he got to go inside the truck all qualms disappeared. He climbed right up and sat on the seat all proud. He was so dang cute!

After the firehouse we went back to Jill's for a Valentines day party. It was so much fun! The kids got to decorate little bags for the valentines that they exchanged, Tyler went all out haha. Jill made a really yummy lunch for us all and the best homemade sugar cookies. Thanks Jill for planning everything, you're great!
